    HP introduces new ‘green’ label for products
    Sure, recycled paper is nice, but what about feeding it through a recycled printer?
    Not
    as in refurbished and resold, but a new Deskjet that is composed of 83
    percent recycled plastic. Hewlett-Packard is introducing a new
    green-focused label for some of its peripherals, and one of the first
    items under that label is the aforementioned D2545 printer.

    HP
    hopes to tempt the environmentally conscious as well as those looking
    for a bargain with the D2545, which retails for $45. Even the ink
    cartridges it uses are made of recycled plastic resins.The printer is
    one of several products that will fall under the HP Eco Highlights
    label. So far it also includes three LaserJet printers (P4015x, P4515x,
    and P4515xm models). HP says the label will list the environmental
    attributes of the product, and will eventually encompass all products
    the company offers.HP recycles tons of dead tech products every year,
    so it makes sense that it’s able to make products from the materials it
    recycles. So while consumers are becoming much more aware of the
    environmental impact of the products we use, and even businesses are
    beginning to see the boon that green policies are to their bottom
    lines, why not make this standard instead of an outlier?HP responded
    that by 2010,100 percent of its Deskjet printers will contain some
    recycled materials, and will increase by three times the number of
    inkjet printers made from recycled materials.If HP can do this with
    printers, why not make their PCs and other products from recycled
    materials too?They wouldn’t be the first to make eco-conscious PC
    casings. Fujitsu has been experimenting with corn-based resins in some
    of the laptops it is selling, and for the same price as the
    non-corn-based models.
